The Best of Peachy Green: Green Kids

Part 4 of The Best of Peachy Green Motherhood comes first in my life. Helping my children to tread lightly on the Earth has become a priority in our home and they are embracing it with open arms. They want to do what’s right for the environment. They want to be green kids. My 9-year-old [...]

Green Family Movie Night

My girls are more than enthusiastic when it comes to caring for our planet.

Kids over the age of 6 or 7 probably hear the same news stories that we do, including information on global warming and soaring gas prices. Fortunately, with as many dire predictions as there are, renewable energy sources such as [...]
